Minneapolis Millers 1910 File

I’m continuing with my work on the research project for helping answer the question of how the Minneapolis Millers were able to win the American Association pennant three years running. The current “spoke” of this wheel is my development of a game-by-game record of the 1910 season using box scores from the perennial sports publication Sporting Life. I have now revised my data collection sheet four times. It includes Game # (Opening Day being #1, etc.), the opposing team, the Millers’ record after each game, the number of runs scored in each game by each team, the starting pitcher for each team and if the pitcher threw left or right, and a space for notes (where I keep track of things such as extra inning games and big innings. The record will be organized by home and road dates. One thing which makes this last part a bit more complicated is the fact that there were certain periods during the season when the Millers would play the St. Paul Saints for one game (technically a homestand) in Minneapolis in the morning/early afternoon game, and then play another game the same day in St. Paul (a one-game road trip). Last night I made great headway and have about two more weeks worth of data to compile before I enter it into the spreadsheet which is where the real work begins, adding things up, organizing data, reconfiguring data, etc. Then I’ll get to work on 1911. Want to have most of my file work done by June 1 so writing the next Almanac can begin at that point.
